in love

I have discovered some new things to eat! I had no shortage to begin with, but I am trying a whack diet to see if I have any food intolerances. So I have been gluten, dairy, sugar and depending on the day caffeine, chocolate and alcohol-free for almost three weeks. As a friend in town put it, its basically a food-free diet. Or a convenient-free diet. So I have been making yummy smoothies with spinach, drinking almond milk and eating more corn tortillas than I ever wanted to.
BUT . . . I have discovered a new convenient friend called Larabar. They are gluten, dairy and soy free and are usually made from three ingredients, totally raw. And after all that they manage to be yummy. They have flavors like coconut creme pie and banana bread. Come on! And to my delight I learned they are as cool as I am because they originated in Colorado! Thanks Larabar, for meeting my needs right when I was crying into my only-thing-I-can-eat-on-the-menu-yet-no-nutritional-value-iceberg-salad. I think a blueberry muffin is calling my name.

I love larabars! Sounds like a tough diet, especially the gluten part. Good luck!
